They’re on the road again. Spamalot costumes, props and set are out on a rental but this time we can see them on the stage because they’re at Trinity College School in Port Hope!
This will be first time Spamalot has played in the area since the VOS production in April 2013. The VOS Spamalot costumes have travelled all over North America, from colleges and regional theatres in the US, to professional engagements in Newfoundland and Kentucky.
Spamalot opens at Trinity College School in Port Hope on April 27th and runs to the 29th at the Dick & Jane LeVan Theatre.
For information about rental of Spamalot, Shrek the Musical or Chitty, Chitty, Bang, Bang see our website.
The VOS Barn is all a tizzy with activity over the past days and weeks!
Spamalot – In and Out
It’s been a busy week at the VOS THEATRE barn in Cobourg.
The Spamalot costumes are being prepped by Lannette Donnelly and Liz Clark for an upcoming rental at Trinity College School. Tuesday and Wednesday was spent going through the inventory and examining it for repairs and “stink”.
The Spamalot sets and props will return Sunday evening from a 3 week stint in Mississauga, where they will be safely stowed until April for the TCS production in April.
Young Frankenstein – Setting Up Shop
Meanwhile, waiting to take over with a monster set build are the Young Frankenstein construction crew, pictured below, raising the roof. The team has been working multiple nights per week, fuelled by coffee, donuts, and driven by crew chief Scott Berry. To say we appreciate their time and talent is an understatement.
Keep up to date with the VOS Blog as we roll our production of Young Frankenstein towards our April 14th Opening Night!
Valentine’s Day is just days away so get your lovely Monster a real treat – tickets for date night in Transylvania!
We received some kind words from a recent renter today – this from Jacinta Mackey Graham, Artistic Director for Atlantic Light Theatre:
Thank you VOS Theatre and Liz Clark for your excellent service in providing Atlantic Light Theatre (St. John’s Newfoundland) with costumes for our production of Spamalot!
The costumes were great and we had many compliments on them! Your attention to detail in communicating with us and compiling a comprehensive list that ensured success went well beyond what was expected!
We have a feeling this isn’t the last we’ll hear about the success of these costumes.
An extra special thanks to our team of folks who work all hours to keep these rentals flowing from the VOS Costume space at the Henley Arcade.
The VOS production of Spamalot included a great team of people backstage as well as onstage. Here David Bryson, Bea Quarrie, Liz Clark and Doug Littleford pose for a moment frozen in time.
Bea, who was dressed in costume to not appear in the show, will be hosting a play reading series for VOS this year. David and Liz Clark will be working closely together on the upcoming production of White Christmas.
Our photographer Ken took a boatload of photos during rehearsals for Spamalot. We’ve had them on ice for too long…
